ANA Board of Directors
May 2023 – May 2024
Kevin Ross, President
Kevin Ross has been a resident of the Armatage neighborhood since 2010. He moved to the neighborhood to be close to the lakes and all of the great parks in Minneapolis. His goal was to be within a mile of the connected parks and parkways for running and biking. Armatage was the perfect fit! He has worked for the University of Minnesota for the last 21 years as a Construction Project Manager, overseeing design and construction on campus. Kevin hopes to bring his management skills to the board. His goals for while on the board include influence on the park board’s plans for the future of Armatage Park and supporting the great activities and events the park provides for us.
Sharla McIntosh-Ziegler, Vice President
Sharla and her family moved to Minneapolis in 2005 primarily residing in Northeast Minneapolis before purchasing a home in Armatage in 2010. Sharla works as a Speech-Language Pathologist for the past 12 years at a Minneapolis area charter school serving students with various abilities. She lives with her husband, school-aged daughter, and preschool-aged son. Sharla and her family have grown close relationships with their neighbors and feel fortunate to be apart of such a welcoming community. In joining the board, Sharla hopes to learn more about the history of her neighborhood, how to actively engage all residents (renters and homeowners alike), improve safety measures and continue to foster positive relationships with her neighbors.
Judy Vecere, Treasurer
Originally from New Jersey, Judy moved to Minneapolis to be close to her granddaughter. She has lived in Armatage since 2011 and joined the board to become involved in the community and learn about our city.
Nikki Lindberg, Secretary
Nikki has lived in Armatage since 2002, where she and her husband raised two girls (now mostly launched). She has previously served on the ANA board and worked as a coordinator for several Minneapolis neighborhoods. Her communications, non-profit, and project management skills add to her experience working for neighborhoods and with the city. She is thrilled to be part of an active and engaged board that strives to bring compassion for people and planet through community activities.
Already residents of Minneapolis since 2012, Eli and his wife Emily moved to Armatage in 2017 with the mindset of starting a family. They now have a 3 year-old, and baby #2 is on the way. They were drawn by the great proximity to parks, lakes, restaurants, but all with a quiet residential vibe that makes Armatage a wonderful place to call home. Eli loves his involvement with ANA to help promote community engagement and taking action to make this neighborhood a better place for all. Eli has worked as a residential real estate advisor for 14 years, and truly loves his job in helping people through some of the biggest chapter transitions of their lives.
Ethan and his wife, Sarah, have been residents of Minneapolis since 2015 and moved to Armatage in late 2019. Proximity to outdoor activity and the cozy feel were the main characteristics that drew them to the neighborhood. He brings an open mind, a positive attitude, and a focus on “doing what it takes” to the board. His main goals as a board member are to increase inclusion and community engagement in our events and committees, specifically the Green Team. He works as an engineer at a machine design company in the East Metro.
Holly and her son are new-ish to the Armatage neighborhood and feel fortunate to call it home. Holly grew up in Wisconsin and went to school at UW Stout for her undergraduate degree and moved to the cities shortly after. She and her son (4.5) enjoy exploring the neighborhood, parks, trails, and coffee shops. Holly joined ANA to connect with and serve her neighborhood with a hope of encouraging others to enjoy all that Armatage has to offer. In her free time, she enjoys reading, baking, and all things outdoors.
Laura is a new member of the Armatage neighborhood, joining the crew in September 2022; however, she’s been a Twin Cities resident all her life. Laura grew up in Minnetonka and went to the UMN-Twin Cities for her undergrad and has worked for the past 8 years in the cybersecurity field. Laura takes many walks around the neighborhood with her pup, Lacey, and enjoys exploring the various parks, restaurants and small businesses in the area. She is so excited to join the Armatage Neighborhood Association Board and lend her time and efforts to this great community. Her goal in joining the Board is to continue the efforts made by the wonderful members that came before her to serve the community using a compassion-filled and inclusive approach.
